Mile High Horror Film Festival 2010 - October 22-24 Starz Film Center, Denver, CO

While the inaugural year of the Mile High Horror Film Festival boasted filmmaker Dan Myrick (The Director of The Blair Witch Project), Scarlet Salem (actress/model), and Bailey from Denver’s 93.3 as celebrity judges and showcased award-winning horror films from around the world, the true success of the 2010 Mile High Horror Film Festival had much more to do with a pass-holder’s comment that for her, film had “never been so intimate or alive as it was in the presence of those who had given it life.” Our 2010 year was truly a celebration of the best international, independent film in the kind of intimate venue that provided audience members the opportunity to engage with filmmakers, artists, and actors over the course of a few unforgettable days.
